Paddington Hobo Padlock question....

  1. I'm new to Chloe purses and I was lucky enough to find this Paddington Hobo purse for $399 at Nordstrom Rack


    http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod32650051&parentId=cat7400732&masterId=cat10090734&index=45&cmCat=cat000000cat000141cat000149cat000226cat10090734cat7400732

    It has a silver padlock and the lock looks unsmooth, scratch,worn. Totally different from the brass locks. Is this how the lock is suppose to look, I know the purse is at a outlet, so maybe its a defect? Or not authentic? Thanks!
     
  2. I think they are supposed to have that look from the start, the price sounds just too good to be true, what's the color?
     
  3. Wow, what a bargain! :nuts:

    I love that green - what a stunning colour (is that the colour you got?).

    The silver lock is supposed to be scratched up and vintage looking. :yes:

    If you have any doubts, you could always take some pics of these details and post them in the Authenticate This Chloe thread in the Chloe Shopping sub-forum:


    1. Close-up of the underside of the padlock (the 'tree' section), taken at such an angle that you can see which side is the front (the side with the 'Chloe' logo) and which side is the back of the padlock.

    2. Close-up of the 'Chloe' heat stamp on the padlock.

    3. Close-up of the 'Chloe MADE IN ITALY' heat stamp inside the bag.

    4. Close-up of the serial tab.

    5. Close-up of the leather grain.

    6. Close-up of the buckles (showing the 'Chloe' logo).

    7. Close up of the key (showing the 'Chloe' logo).

    8. Close-up of any logo on the underside of the zipper.


    Hope that helps! :biggrin:
     
  4. ^I know thats what I was thinking. I actually bought 2 at first. The other one was a black Silverado large tote size purse rounded at the top with 2 pockets front and back, but I decided to return it ( can't find a pic online). They also had a brown Silverado med messanger style purse. Apparantly they had a bunch more Chloes, but they sold out.

    The color I have looks very much like the color of the top purse:

  5. Thanks!!

    No I didn't get the green, mine is more of a grey color. Thanks for the help. Im going to try and take pics tomorrow of the purse and post them tomorrow.
     
  6. Jessjoy firstly what an amazing buy! I've been trying to get that style for ages!!! Well done you. The silver padlock is meant to be like that. I have been in a store and they have brought one out from the back, still wrapped, boxed etc and they take it out to show me and it is exactly like that from the start.

    Just enjoy your fab bag and fab find
     

  7. Beautiful! :heart: :heart: :heart:

    Congrats! :biggrin:
     

  8. No problem! :biggrin:
     
  9. Great buy!! Good for you!
     
  10. Holy moly! What a fabulous buy! Congrats!
     
  11. All the authentic Paddys with silver locks I've seen in department stores have had that "used" look to the lock. Kind of mottled, not smooth like the brass ones.
     
  12. Could you please tell me if the matte brass finish wears over a period of time and the shiny brass shows through. I have used it for a couple of years. Please help.
